The lymphatic system works 24/7 to get rid of the waste from other body systems. You could say, it’s the body’s housekeeper. However, lymph can over accumulate resulting in the puffiness we see in and around the face and neck. The cause can range from a sedentary lifestyle, toxic food and beverages, pollution, infections, and stress.
While that sounds like a battle you can’t win, the good news is, you can improve it!
I’ve performed manual lymph drainage of the face on many, many clients. It can deliver instant results that you will simply love. If you’re not fortunate to have a personal esthetician nearby, there are techniques you can perform at home.
Lymphatic drainage massage using a VERY gentle sweeping movement is a powerful technique to help increase lymph flow. With an increase of lymph flow, not only will you see a reduction in puffy eyes, sagging jowls but you’ll also boost the immune function. Harmful substances are removed from the tissues and neutralized in the nodes.
The proper touch and direction in lymph drainage massage is important. It requires a very light, gentle sweeping upward and outward. Gravity forces it downward so this gentle up and out movement helps improve the flow of lymph toning and adding a lovely glow to the skin. Using a deep touch can cause swelling and inflammation. Go easy!
To create a glide effect on the surface of your skin, use a glide gel to reduce friction and pulling of the skin.
